AUDIO: Sanford Bemidji Dermatology’s Nicole Pink talks summer skin care

Nurse Practitioner Nicole Pink in Sanford Bemidji’s Dermatology department highlighted several ways people can keep their skin healthy this summer.

Pink said that a sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher is the best defense against sunburn.

I asked several questions on types of sunscreen, like mineral or chemical-based, sunscreens for kids, and when we should be concerned about moles on our skin.

On moles, Pink recommends seeing a dermatologist any time a mole appears different, like scabbing, bleeding, tenderness, and other symptoms.

Patients do need a referral to be seen at Sanford Dermatology.
